In the meantime, I decided to clean out a section of the desk in my office/work room. Maybe you can guess what that led to...
I'm still in the middle of a BIG MESS but I have decided this was a necessity. I have piles of things that I am determined will not go back in this room. I am really trying to be ruthless in culling out the mess. Jim is very proud of me. I know I'll be happy when it's done, but for now, it seems like an endless task, especially when I'd rather be stamping or scrapping or making aprons.
The forsythia is just beautiful this year. Jim and I went out to lunch today and we couldn't believe how everything has blossomed forth over the weekend. The Magnolia trees are just gorgeous. Here's my little peach tree that just sprouted blooms this weekend.
And now, even though my office still looks like the Merry Ned, I'm going to take this and sit on my porch and read for a few minutes.
"The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get
kind that comes from within: strength, courage, dignity.
